If on boot you get a message saying Drive 2 is missing, check if you have 2 HDD's fitted, this would be the BIOS reporting it can't see drive 2, if the PC does have 2 drives then the 2nd drive has failed.

About Graphics and Video Card Drivers: Graphics and video Card Drivers serve as an interpreter between your Windows operating system and the Graphics and Video Card. In other words, these Drivers allow Windows to communicate with the Graphics and Video Card installed on your computer.
Most of the Graphics and Video Card Driver errors occur when the required Driver is missing, corrupt, or outdated.
Common Graphics and Video Card Driver problems: In case of a Graphics and Video Card Driver related error, your operating system will not be able to access or make best use of the functionality of your graphics or video card.

Below are the four most common Driver error codes and their meaning:

Error 1 - Reinstall the drivers for this device. (Code 18)
Meaning - The required driver is configured incorrectly or outdated.
Error 2 - This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)
Meaning - The required driver is configured incorrectly or is missing.
Error 3 - The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
Meaning - The required driver is not installed on your computer.
Error 4 - This device cannot start. (Code 10)
Meaning - Usually, this error means that the required driver is outdated.
How do I fix Graphics and Video Card Driver problems?

Roll back to the previously installed Driver

Device Manager, an inbuilt utility in Windows, allows you to troubleshoot common driver-related errors. For instance, you may sometimes start experiencing driver related problems after you have updated it. To resolve the issue, you can roll back to a previously installed driver. To do this in Windows 7/Vista, perform the following steps:
  1. - Open the Control Panel window and double-click Device Manager
  2. - Double-click Display Adapters to view all devices under it
  3. - Double-click the device that is causing the problem
  4. - Click the Driver tab
  5. - Click the Roll Back Driver button and follow the onscreen instructions

Scan your computer using a Driver Update Tool

While Windows does provide an interface through which users can fix driver-related errors, the fact is that all driver-related issues cannot be resolved efficiently via Device Manager. Another fact is that resolving driver issues manually is a tedious affair. Also, you need to be proficient with Windows to carry out such a task.
On the other hand, driver management tools present no such problems. With just a click of the mouse, a driver management program scans your entire computer, identifies all installed hardware devices, and updates drivers for the identified devices

I formatted and now I have no sound! XP wont detect them now


Hi there, you will need to go to control panel, sound. Ensure sound is turned up. You will also need to install the sound driver. If these are USB it should be plug and play, so you may be missing windows drivers. You can find out what drivers are missing by right clicking on my computer > go to manage. Look for sound and audio and see if there is a yellow exclamation mark on anything (means it's missing drivers).

Bootmgr is missing/dc5700


What do you mean by installing driver after format?
Format is a command that destroy all the data on your harddisk and creates new file system. This means that if you have formated your harddisk it is more or less probable that you don't have operating system anymore, so there is nothing to boot.
I need more information to help you.

My audio driver is not working (error 10)


The Windows error "This device cannot start. Code 10? or "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" is a hardware error that most commonly means that you have a bad, missing, or incompatible device driver. So, for example, "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver" means that you have a bad or missing or incompatible driver for your sound card.

I suggest trying an update, or if you just updated it roll back the driver.

How do i get the Ethernet controller to work after a new install of windows?


Hi,


If you have reinstalled windows in your computer, most likely some of the device drivers have not yet been recognized by the Operating System it is because it requires a driver, or the software that you need to install in order for that particular device to function... in your case the ethernet controller. To check if there are missing drivers you need to install, go to DEVICE MANAGER. The Faster way to go there is...

on the keyboard, press ALT+Windows key. It will then open the RUN command box. Type devmgmt.msc then hit ENTER. Device Manager will then show-up. Check and see if there "bangs" in there like ?, !, or a red X. If there is/are question mark/s, that mean driver is missing. If it shows an exclamation, that means driver was not properly installed or there is a conflict with the driver. If you see a red X, that means driver is disabled. Those are the things you have to check inside Device Manager.

Here are some solutions for that...

1. ? = go to your computer manufacturer's website and download the driver/s from there if driver cd is not available. Then after downloading the driver, install it.
e.g. DELL - http://support.dell.com

2. ! - uninstall driver and reinstall it. To uninstall the driver, just click on that device inside Device Manager then hit DEL on the keyboard

3. red X - right click on that device then left click ENABLE

Let me know if you will need further assistance. Hopefully, solution I gave works for you.
